SPACE is excited to announce the first exhibition to be held in the new gallery in Ilford. Lindsey Mendick: Regrets, I’ve Had a Few explores hindsight, nostalgia and folklore through ceramics and textiles. Mendick worked with a group of Ilford’s 65+ to build clay effigies in the shape of the advice they would have given their younger selves. The exhibition is constructed as a stage for storytelling and intergenerational sharing. Mendick is also collaborating with her mother, a talented seamstress, to create fabric adornments for the sculptural works.
